This April, poets in 64 cities can earn a free ride on the Poetry Cab. Send us a poem about your city and when we select your poem you will earn a free ride on the Poetry Cab.

The Poetry Cab is not a regulary poetry cab because the backseat of the cab is transformed into a big ‘Hollywood-style’ filmstudio as all selected poets have to read their selected poem at the backseat of the Poetry Cab. When the Poetry Cab arrives in Los Angeles thefilmstudio will be transformed into a huge ‘Broadway-style’ backseat theater in order to give audience, other poets, etc the opportunity to watch the poems read in the Poetry Cab in our own backseat theater. 

Write us a poem and who knows we will select you for a free ride, our anthology and exhibition.
